COMMENTS

A doubly symmetric square has symmetries in both the horizontal and vertical planes.
One plane symmetry requires onetoone correspondence between values of elements a[i][j] and a[Ni][j] in vertical plane and between values of elements a[i][j] and a[i][Nj] in horizontal plane for all i and j values (numbering if indexes from 1).  Eduard I. Vatutin, Alexey D. Belyshev, Oct 09 2017
It seems that doubly symmetric diagonal Latin squares exists only for orders N == 0 (mod 4).  Eduard I. Vatutin, Oct 18 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = A292517(n)/n!.


EXAMPLE

Doubly symmetric diagonal Latin square example:
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
3 2 7 6 1 0 5 4
2 3 1 0 7 6 4 5
6 7 5 4 3 2 0 1
7 6 3 2 5 4 1 0
4 5 0 1 6 7 2 3
5 4 6 7 0 1 3 2
1 0 4 5 2 3 7 6
Reversion of all rows is equivalent to the exchange of elements 0 and 7, 1 and 6, 2 and 5, 3 and 4; hence, this square is horizontally symmetric. Reversion of all columns is equivalent to the exchange of elements 0 and 1, 2 and 4, 3 and 5, 6 and 7; hence, the square is also vertically symmetric.
